Aquaponics Training with Green Skies

Greenskies was born out of the desire to provide career opportunities for ASD youths. We understand that youths with ASD may face unique challenges when it comes to finding employment. LoveXpress believes that everyone deserves the chance to pursue their passions, that’s why we’ve created a program specifically designed to cater to their needs.

Through Greenskies, we offer a unique opportunity for youths to learn about aquaponics farming, a sustainable and innovative method of farming that combines fish farming and hydroponics. The repetition and clear routines of aquaponics farming provide a sense of security and structure that make it the perfect introduction career for youths with ASD.

Urban agriculture is the future of the world’s food supply chain, and the symbiosis of fish and vegetables is an innovative and sustainable method that combines modern science and technology with environmental protection. Aquaponics farming is more structured and modular than traditional soil farming, making it easier for SEN/autistic youth to learn and operate.

We offer workshops and career training for youths interested in pursuing a career in aquaponics farming, providing them with the skills and knowledge necessary to succeed in this growing industry. We also work with schools and NGOs to set up aquaponics systems, providing ASD youths with the opportunity to work as a construction and events assistant during workshops.

Through the Greenskies program, we’ve seen the transformative power of providing opportunities to youth with ASD. By investing in the potential of our youth, we believe that we can create a brighter future for all.

Learn our craft

At Green Skies, we are dedicated to offering employment practice training and job opportunities for ASD individuals. Through our career program, participants have the chance to learn valuable skillsets in aquaponics technology, including hands-on experience in areas such as farming and system repair. 

Our aim is to provide individuals with ASD with a supportive environment to gain knowledge and practical experience in this upcoming innovative field.

TARGET GROUP

Special Education Needs (SEN) or Autistic Youths aged 16-25

How it Works

1

Career Allocation

The program begins by identifying the individual strengths and interests of the ASD youths, recognising their unique talents and potential within the aquaponics industry. Through careful evaluation and assessment, the program matches each ASD youth with a suitable role within the program, ensuring they can contribute effectively and find fulfillment in their work.

2

Theory into Practice

To provide comprehensive training, the program focuses on translating theory into practise. ASD youths learn the fundamental concepts and techniques of aquaponics in a safe setting. They have hands-on experience in practising these techniques, such as setting up and managing aquaponics systems, monitoring water quality, and understanding the symbiotic relationship between plants and fish.

3

Internship

ASD youths are offered internship opportunities in aquaponics farms. They gain practical experience by actively participating in the day-to-day operations of a real-life aquaponics farm. The internship phase allows the ASD youths to apply their acquired knowledge and skills in a professional setting, further enhancing their understanding and competence in aquaponics farming.

4

Local Farm Tours

To broaden their perspective and expose them to different farming environments, the program takes ASD youths on tours to various local aquaponics farms.

5

Graduation

Upon successful completion of the program, a graduation ceremony is held to recognize and celebrate the achievements of the ASD youths.

Through personalized career counseling and guidance, the program assists the youths in finding employment opportunities in the aquaponics industry.

WHAT PARENTS SAY

尋日我一家四口玩得好開心,雖然想說,我同時間好唔捨得大家——儘管疫情令我地家長沒有時間聚在一起,但見到大人同孩子都有同一地方一齊玩一齊學習,我覺得很難得。尋日有兩個畫面我印象很深刻,一是到了CAFE,見到Kitty見到在廚房煮炸雞給大家,另一是影家庭照時我小朋友不望鏡頭影相,Kitty很接納——同樣地LoveExpress團隊也是如此包容的,我很感恩遇上了LoveExpress。雖然孩子的學習仍有漫漫長路,但I am very proud of being one of 星兒五期大家庭!大家努力呀!
